“Artistic growth can continue throughout a musician’s life.”
–The Musician’s Way, p. 296
Unity of body, mind and spirit lies at the center of artistic music making.
We don’t sing only with our voices, nor do we play instruments merely with our head and hands.
We perform with our whole selves.
The more adept we become at using ourselves in integrated ways, the more effortless and authentic our performances become.
